Legal action against a business owner after a traffic crash

Business owners are taken to court for countless reasons. Sometimes, litigation is centered around disputes with competitors, such as allegations of a breach of contract, for example. Others may involve employees, such as claims that overtime was denied, and an employee may also decide to take their case to court after they are hurt in a traffic collision that took place on the job. Lawsuits as well as the hardships that car accident victims face highlight how essential it is to prevent motor vehicle accidents from occurring on the job. However, more workers will continue to sustain injuries and pass away in the years ahead.

Are non-compete agreements enforceable in Colorado?

After working as an employee in Broomfield for years, you have finally summoned up the courage to band together with a few fellow colleagues and form your own business. Yet as you are preparing to leave the office on your last day, your now former boss asks you what your plans are. After you inform him or her of your intentions, he or she politely yet in a matter-of-fact manner reminds you that you signed a non-compete agreement when you were initially hired. Does this now throw a wrench in your plans? 

Can dispute resolution clauses prevent employee litigation?

You want to ensure that your employees have what they need to do their job well, and you want them to be loyal to your Colorado business. You definitely don't want disgruntled employees who will file frivolous lawsuits, wasting your time and money and putting your company's good reputation at risk. Although you cannot keep everyone happy all the time, you can make it difficult for an employee to take you to court over an issue that you could have resolved, had you been given the chance.

What is the Family and Medical Leave Act?

Can a business sue over a bad review?

If you own a business in Colorado, you know just how important customer satisfaction can be.

Some business owners have even tried to sue over negative reviews, a practice which has come under fire as of late.

How can I ensure a real estate purchase contract is sound?
